On the association game
Calling, comparing, or associating Barack Obama with Osama bin Laden is distasteful and wrong for any rational person, let alone an elected official and a party leader. Jeff Frederick’s comments should be rebuked by anyone who hears them.
Along the same lines, calling, comparing, or associating Bob McDonnell with the Taliban is as equally distasteful and wrong, and should be rebuked by any rational person. Are we really going to compare the Attorney General of Virginia to brutal warlords who committed who knows how many human rights atrocities because you don’t like his political ideology?
Anybody who refers to the Republican nominee for Governor as “Taliban Bob” is as worthless to political discourse as Jeff Frederick. Anyone disagree?
